How to join the PBZ Group?
We base the selection of new associates on how their key competences best suit them for individual positions, enabling them to reach their full potential at their new workplace. Different methods are used in the process, in order to ensure that the evaluation of competences is as objective, effective and reliable as possible. Each candidate included in the selection process for a position within the PBZ Group goes through three or more rounds of selection, all of which require that certain criteria be met before the candidate is advanced to the next round. Psychological assessment which includes cognitive abilities tests and a personality questionnaire is conducted in the first round of selection. The next step is an interview with the Human Resources representative, and the managers of the organisational unit which employs the new employee participate in the interview in the third selection round. Depending on the position to be filled, the selection process may additionally include a foreign language test, a test concerning the command of MS Excel, preparation of professional presentations and/or an additional selection interview.
Round of selection
Upon completion of the selection process, each candidate who has been included in one of the selection rounds receives feedback. The data of the candidates involved in the selection process remains in the PBZ Group’s database for future tenders. There is a possibility of contacting the candidate again in case of an open position which is in accordance with their professional skill set and interests.
